Pepper Hamilton is one of seven firms named to Law360’s list of Pennsylvania Powerhouses for 2015. Pepper Hamilton and the other firms are being recognized as part of Law360’s annual regional Powerhouse series, which selects firms based on their statewide footprint and their significant regional accomplishments over the last year.
